    Hello John,

    there is an interesting note by Mr. Kohler (AOK Swiss), that an aperture of 120mm is about the maximum at F/7 for the Ohara FPL53 to keep the aberrations at low levels.

    Once again, congrats on your n+1 refractor,

    JG

    Thanks, the 100mm f/9 should be a nice replacement for the AR102.
